This week has gone by watching documentaries about ISIS/ISIL in Iraq and Syria, the impact of Islamism and thoroughly examined the Israeli-Palestinian conflict(s). Sensitive issues, but I reached the conclusion of the need to raise awareness. Fully aware that I can´t satisfy every political opinion. Looked into the latest Israeli-Palestinian conflict with new eyes this time. One thing are the images of dead children, being given much attention in our press for years. The other side, the political and the foreign aid issue. Taken the time to investigate the Hamas Charter and even the 1977 Likud Party Platform (the party Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu belongs to), to know what I am dealing with. Feel free to check for more updated ones.
Having examined the history from an Israeli perspective and a Palestinian perspective, connecting the dots. Seen a couple of Hamas music videos broadcasted on the Internet/Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas TV), they give me an idea of the way Hamas thinks. Neither gave me an impression of Hamas wanting peace. These videos propose a security threat, a threat I did not know existed. Especially since the local press here for some time been more positive towards the Palestinian case and not the Israeli.
As of lately, some improvement been noted. I really hope for peace in the Middle East, in some countries a complicated matter and much work. Part of the work is the importance of balanced journalism. Easier to know how to help if the information is correct. Also, feel free to do your own research to find out more, I´m just at the start.Collected some peace artifacts too only to highlight the wish for peace in the region, this post is not sponsored by the way. Happy Sunday.
